Asian Lady Beetle Infestation of Structures
The Asian Lady Beetle, Harmonia axyridis (Pallas), is relatively new to this country. The immatures (larvae) are often orange and black and shaped somewhat.
Description:It is inherently a beneficial insect, and one which has frequently been deliberately released in the U. They can pose a legitimate nuisance, though, when confronted with large numbers of them indoors, and their secretions can stain furniture, curtains, blankets, rugs, etc. They do not breed, lay eggs, or feed inside the home, however, and they are not structurally-damaging. As the name suggests, the Multicolored Asian lady beetle exhibits a great many color forms.
